    Property Tax Cap 
    New York State defines the tax cap as limiting a local government’s (e.g. city, town, village, various special districts and school districts) overall growth in the property tax levy to 2 percent or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. However, it isn't a 2 percent tax cap at all.  It is a tax levy limit based on a complicated 8-step formula.  Click on the following link to learn more:  Property Tax Cap
